AWA Position Statement: Transmission Lines

June 21, 2012

AWA believes that to the extent possible, all new transmission lines must be constructed within existing corridors of disturbance. In all other cases, new transmission lines must be routed to avoid environmentally significant areas including regionally designated areas, protected areas, critical wildlife habitat, intact fragments of grasslands and parklands natural landscapes and AWA areas of concern, as depicted on our Wild Alberta map.

If I were asked to illustrate a scene of utter serenity and peace, I would choose a picture of a mother grizzly wandering across flower-covered slopes with two small cubs gamboling at her heels. This is truly a part of the deep tranquility that is the wilderness hallmark.
